Procedure

Clean glitter up off carpet in several ways. Use your vacuum first, but be aware that you will probably have to go over the same spot many, many times. Glitter often sticks to the actual carpet itself, so a vacuum isn’t going to do the trick all the time. Wrap some tape around your fingers by starting a finger wrap with the sticky side out. Cover your entire hand with wrapped tape, as long as the stickiness is on the outside of your wrap. Use masking tape, because you can cover more area of the carpet doing this, without any problems. Get down on your hands and knees and use the tape to remove as much glitter as possible. For carpeting, vacuuming and tape are going to be the two best options for removing glitter.

  1. Remove the carpet to an open area. The presence of furniture and other items tend to disrupt the work and can trip someone while cleaning.
  2. Vacuum until the particles are removed from the surface of the carpet.
  3. Wash the carpet and allow it to dry and make.
  4. Aerate the carpet after it has dried.
  5. A blower will remove any remaining particles on the carpet and subsequently maintain its original condition. As mentioned in the article about general carpet cleaning the procedure will obviously keep it in form condition and maintain its texture in due cause.
  6. Fold the carpet and return it indoors. It is good to apply an odor remover and any insect repellers.This will prevent any living insects from being introduced into the living place.
